Trekster's was not caused by the fact that he was using them in conjunction. As a matter of fact his experience was more badass than bad.

The bad part was when the Nitrous solenoid didn't close and filled his piping with nitrous lol. However, like i said before it had nothing to do with the fact that he was boosted and running n2o.

Many people run turbo with n20 to spool up but your dealing with increased risks, bad solenoids/incorrect install can be your motors destruction. Many do not have these issues if all add-ons are bought and correctly installed and car is tuned for n20 all is good.

correct, and thus, indirectly to his turbo set up, trekster's incident ended up blowing up and caused some major damage....

So is nitrous alone and turbo or just about anything requires some risk. Again, anyone other than Trekster out there who has played with both at once?
To answer your question, on my '01 car with the original set up (stock bottom end, HG, 440cc injectors, t-62-1 turbo, etc...) which is now a equivalent to a stage 2.5-3, n2o was used. I dynoed 501whp with race gas, and 561whp with a 50shot from 4k to 6k rpm. Hope that helps. Just a side note, on the street, I never squeezed although the car was set up for it. The instant kick in boost with the t-62 turbo was enough power for me to slip and slide all over the place even with 265 V700 tires. I am contemplating squeezing a small 75-100 shot to bring me over the 1k whp mark, but for the street, there is no need for n2o, the spool is quite streetable and the hp is abundant...for now :)

Didnt you have a dircet port system on the 01 at one point?

Jayson, are you setting up your system to run on pump gas with boost?
Previously, I ran a 50 shot with 15psi from around 3500-6k... No issues This was on stock internals with a head gasket, wet nitrous kit and my old turboeast piggy emanage setup...

I am now running a TEC-3 and looking to reinstall my nitrous setup...

I spoke with Ray at PFS about this, he sees no problem with it other than he stated that I shouldn't go higher than a 50 shot, or I risk freezing my water/methanol in the intake tract... Can anyone else provide some input on this thought...

Wow,how did your stock bottom end hold that kind of power?

I know its an old thread but I am bored and will answer the question. Its all in the tune. Nitrous can indeed be ran with a SC ot Turbo. Infact its a real nice way to run a smaller turbo(almost like a stock turbo car) and spray on top of that for some added HP. I spray my 3000gt vr4 at 15psi and the stock 9bs. Also I sprayed at 20 psi and 15t turbos. So you get the usable low end spool of the turbo and a nice little extra if you want it later. This most of the time is by no means going to be faster than a lager more laggy turbo running more boost(most of the time) but it is one of two or three reasons to spray on top or boost. Others being to spool a big turbo, or to cool intercooler(not really in the coubustion cycle though) With everybody running meth now you really dont see very many people spraying to cool intake charge temps now, meth does a great job of cooling and acting as a knock suppresent. This is a old thread so I am about done now.....

You didn't answer the original question which was what size shot and on how many lbs of boost, also are you controlling it with a standalone...

But it doesn't matter anyways, lol. Thanks for the info!

Oh crap......So yeah, cool thing about nitrous is that when you spray it will bump up the boost a bit too. so a 50 shot caan act like a 75 ect.... I was spraying a 100 shot and on my DSM that added 135 horse to the original 530hp. so it bumped it up to 665.
